Sattikallu

This is known as Shakti kallu in Kannada. Most of temples and places of worship in Tulunad have in the procession a huge oval shaped stone. During fairs and temple festivals, this sattikallu event is held, which tests the physical endurance of youths. A youth who lifts the stone to the maximum height is declared the winner. An award is later presented to the youth, after he completes a circle around the temple, carrying the boulder.
